Like the world
Like a broken record
Always turning

Do you remember when?
You took my hand and said
"Things won't always be this hard"
I'm looking back on the life I want
It still seems so very far.

It can't always be about what you want from me
And the convenient lapses of your memory
I'll keep on working, keep on trying
Always smiling, mostly dying.

Sitting here, waiting for you to say
"I never loved him anyway."
I'm going home
Because I belong

Where I'll fear for my life
Quothe the Raven "Nevermore."
Where the waves crash on the shore
Or where the coyotes sing as one
I wish to the very core
To be away from endless sun.

I don't suppose I know better
Maybe it's always been this way
Can you blame me for hoping?
That someday we'll be okay.
Never again
Don't make me see you lying there
The look on his face says he doesn't care
Waking up with a light in my face
I lied to his questions
I know I'm a disgrace.

Look at me
Give me your word
That you'll end this
Before I do
